VITA!

Vita_Sidorkina_02

After we wrapped our Hamptons Magazine shoot, we decided to play around on digital and on film with our model muse Vita Sidorkina. There are whispers in the industry that she is the next “it” girl, and it says a lot that she just signed a contact with Victoria Secret PINK. I’ve shot a lot of people through the years from models to artists to friends and business folk so I’ve felt the differences in front of the lens. I do my best to make the sitter feel comfortable, beautiful (or handsome), and safe, even if that means helping them pose down to their pinky toe to get a balanced and aesthetically pleasing shot for both yourself and them. However, sometimes you have someone who truly knows how to move in front of the camera. You start a dance and dialogue together both giving to create. Vita does that and as a photographer, it’s my favorite way to photograph someone. It feels like watching a flower bloom in high speed through your camera box.

This was my favorite shoot from summer: I love the simplicity, I love the styling Kelly did on Vita that she picked up from how some of the “cool” guys in the Hamptons had been wearing their sweaters in the chilly night air, and of course, I LOVE Ralph Lauren which is all she needs to wear out East…

The Love Affair

Leilani Bishop (16)

I have been thinking a lot about love affairs: my great love affair with photography, and how something that can bring you so much joy can cause so much pain. The thing about love affairs is that there is always a beginning and an end. Summer, for me, is the greatest love affair of all. The way its beauty and light hurt in your memory on cold winter days. How much you look forward to it when it blows in through the window and how sad it is when the light of day ends and golden leaves begin to fall. Summer is love. Summer was made for love.
Leilani Bishop knows the bittersweetness of summer. She makes perfume oils that entrap the florals that dance through the long, hot, sticky afternoons. The single note scents of a delicate flower that rub off on summer lovers and reminds them of you long after the last petal falls. Here Leilani plays our muse who is trapped forever in an impossible love affair as the end of summer prepares to turn the page into fall…

Mad, Magical, Mystical Wonderland

The Mad Hatter: Have I gone Mad?
Alice: I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

Our heroine steps into a magical place, frozen in time. She makes her way around vintage teacups, forgotten old keys, and strands of ivy taking over this forgotten land as she explores a new world; a world of wonder and madness, of whimsy and delight. Wearing sparkling shoes as she tiptoes through the tabletop, she leads us on a brand-new adventure…

A Journey and a Dream~

MARRAKEPIC starring Marcella De Martin for Ford Models • art direction & styling: Kelly Framel •  photography: Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg • makeup: Porsche Cooper for FLIRT! Cosmetics • hair: Noelle Chen for Kerastase • lighting assistant Jordan Parrott • location: Ann Street Studio

It was only a moment ago we were riding through the Agafay Desert on the back of a camel, putting rose oil on our damp summer skin and wondering the long winding halls of the souk. The inspiration we found in Morocco has settled in my mind as that of a dream. The things we bought lay around me and as I look at these artifacts I know that somewhere in Marrakech a woman is living that dream I once dreamed…
